I became curious last night when watching Live From the Players and GC ran their new promo for the channel. It is the one with quick candid shots of most of their on-air talent with the song "Masterpiece" by Andy Grammer as the music. Not a bad promo.

I noticed in the shot where they show Lisa Cornwell at the Golf Central desk that they have changed it. Originally that showed her and a man next to her laughing about something. Now they have digitally zoomed in so you only see her, with just a bit of the man's hand sneaking into the right side of the shot.

I cannot for the life of me recall who the guy was in the shot next to her originally. I can only assume that whoever it was is no longer with Golf Channel. Anyone know who that person is who used to be in the shot?

Could it be one of these guys?

Well, all three of those are still listed on the GC site as on-air talent so I dunno. I think they are all still there so it's odd to edit them out of the shot.

Probably just zoomed in on her for more obvious reasons!

I don't think so. I can't remember who it was but the guy was wearing a jacket and tie, which doesn't seem like either of them would do, and they weren't typically on the desk with her.

Because it proves there is someone who actually watches this channel, which I was unaware of, rather than it just playing in the background of a pro shop as white noise.

I was just curious about why they changed it.

Was thinking maybe someone had recorded something on their DVR from a few weeks ago that could illuminate me.

I rarely enjoy the programming on TGC any longer.  Mostly a bunch of garbage.  I do tune in when they have tour coverage, or a little post or pre-game analysis.  I like Duval and Nobilo.

Oh. I thought maybe it had some meaning
